Former Democratic Progressive Party chairman Shih Ming-te's spokesperson, Ho De-fen, tells media that Shih will soon decide on the time for his sit-in seeking President Chen Shui-bian's ouster (ETaiwan News)
Plenty of politicking going on today on the Beautiful Isle:
Taiwan, KMT, DPP, PFP, Shih Ming-deh/Shih Ming-te, Chen Shui-bian
The View from Taiwan (hey! That's me!) dissects a recent anti-Chen piece by blogger and journalist Michael Anti. Taiwan News reports that Shih will determine his strategy soon. Meanwhile the interior ministry argues that Shih's acceptance of donations is illegal. Oops! Another evidence-free opposition accusation goes down the tubes as the alleged misuse of the President's slush fund went for intelligence ops rather than into the Prez's pocket.
